The Israeli Scouts are coming to Louisville to celebrate Israel’s culture and achievements with two concerts on July 29, and the community is encouraged to attend the 6:15 p.m. “I Love Israel” concert to show their love and support of the Jewish State.
The event is free and open to the public.
The Friends of Israel Scouts, Inc. – Tzofim, will also perform at 2 p.m. for JCC summer campers and their families, and will spend the rest of the day interacting with the campers.
The show, which travels to various camps and JCCs around the country, offers a medley of contemporary and traditional songs from the U.S. and Israel. “Given the situation in Israel, this is a great opportunity to show our support for Israel and these young Israelis, as they share their spirit and love for the Jewish State,” said Sara Wagner, JCC senior vice president and COO.
“It’ll be fun, the kids will really enjoy them,” said Rachel Lipkin, JCC middle school director.
Formed in 1995, the Tzofim program seeks to strengthen relationships between Israel and North American Jewry, project Israel in a positive light and form strong bonds of friendship between the Israeli youth and their American counterparts. The scouts have come to be a fun, well-loved summertime tradition.
There will be 12 scouts in Louisville, all of them Israeli teens, staying with volunteer host families.
The scouts will also do some educational activities with Camp Keff while they’re here.
